Most of the time, on college applications, they will ask if you have had any relatives that go to their university and your relation to them. Now, I don't know if the uncle connection constitutes a legacy connection but it shouldn't change anything you put or don't put on your app.

Yes, an Uncle would certainly qualify as a Legacy situation(at least I know it would at my alma mater, Kenyon. It will give you an edge IMO.

How about sister? And would a legacy for grad school count just as much if you're applying undergrad?

At the Ivy League schools, only a parent will give you legacy status.
